Shaped by Adversity


My childhood wasn’t spectacular. I was surrounded with kids from different backgrounds. They had ambitions, big and small; some of them equipped with families and resources to help them get the nicest school supplies and pay for the best schools. I don’t know everyone’s story, clearly, but I’ve always wondered what it would have been like having everything. Who would I have turned out to be if I had access to all the things I wanted while still young? Where in the world would I have ended up?


My Job History: On Different Industries and 1-Day Contracts
